Movie Info

American artist Kiki Smith is renowned for print and sculptural works that explore issues of feminism and the female body. This documentary offers a glimpse into Smith's artistic process as she creates a series of prints, sculptures, and furniture for an eight-room art installation called "Homespun Tales: Stories of Domestic Occupation," which was exhibited in Venice, Italy, as part of the 2005 Venice Biennale. ~ Sandra Bencic, Rovi

The film at times seems like a comic opera. It's no surprise that it all comes together in the end.

Ms. Smith's vision is sketched on a napkin, and her approach to executing it is something like an act of surrender.

Kiki Smith: Squatting the Palace studies the frizzy-haired, multi-tattooed woman as she works in her East Village house preparing sculptures, paintings, drawings and furniture for an eight-room installation at a palace in Venice.

In perpetual, almost pathological motion, Smith fills her Lower East Side home with sketches, sculptures, and people in preparation for an ambitious installation in Venice.
